Sharing Files on Chatter Made Simple

Recently at BoxWorks, we mentioned an upcoming integration with Chatter, a real-time collaboration application for the enterprise from Salesforce. Well, today we’re excited to show off the first part of this integration, designed to make your content more social.

If your company uses Chatter to stay informed and connected across teams, you’ll love this new feature on Box. We’ve simplified the process for sharing your Box files and folders, so you can now share content with co-workers on Chatter in just one click – all without leaving your Box account. We’ve also added the same functionality to share Box content on Yammer, a similar private social network for enterprises.

This integration is powered by the Box Platform, which allows Box to serve as the cloud content sharing and collaboration service for a wide range of applications. With over 120 third-party apps built on the Box Platform (and more added every day), we’re committed to bringing you integrations and developing partnerships that make the enterprise smarter. Stay tuned for more news about the Box Platform and the launch of our Box Innovation Network (/bin) in the next few weeks!

In the meantime, to start sharing your files via Chatter and Yammer, just log in to your Box account, open a file and use the “Post” button in our recently-updated sharing options. Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below.
